Last Sunday's Sermon

Jesus taught us the challenging task of forgiving those who sin against us, especially those who do it over and over again, with the parable of the unforgiving servant. Listen or read the sermon here.

 

If you enjoyed the hymns with violin this last Sunday, here's a recording of the first two we sang, Great is Thy Faithfulness and Chief of Sinners.

While it may seem that everything stays the same from day to day, we know that we are always nearer and nearer to the end when Christ comes again. This brings us great comfort. But it also kicks us in the tail because we must always be ready for His return. Our lamps must always be burning. We'll also sing the great hymn "Wake, Awake, for Night is Flying".

 

“Wake, awake, for night is flying,”

 

The watchmen on the heights are crying;

    “Awake, Jerusalem, arise!”

Midnight hears the welcome voices

And at the thrilling cry rejoices:

    “Oh, where are ye, ye virgins wise?

The Bridegroom comes, awake!

Your lamps with gladness take!

    Alleluia!

With bridal care

Yourselves prepare

To meet the Bridegroom, who is near.”

Listen to a choral version of this hymn here:
